Sort of.  KVM uses a fork of qemu, although the two code bases
seem to be regularly synched up.  Anyway, the command line arguments
are broadly similar.

Remember that virt-manager is using libvirt, and libvirt hides the
qemu command line behind a configuration file (and also hides any
differences): http://libvirt.org/formatdomain.html
